Parque de Atracciones de Madrid is one of the most important amusement parks in Europe. Built during the Franco dictature in the 1960s, the park opened its gates in 1969 for the first time. From the start of the project the park was controlled by a society which later became Parques Reunidos, one of the largest operator of seasonal amusement parks.
Despite its significance for the amusement park industry, the park hosts a variety of rides and attractions. Today, the park offers a total of seven roller coasters – most of them are very unique, e.g. the inverted coaster Tornado or the SkyLoop Abismo – and a variety of outstanding flat rides and water rides. It is also home to one of the Nickelodeon Land themed areas.
